    because sex is a sin. Even if you're married.

    It goes completely against Christian doctrine.

    Mostly it's the Catholic church that is upset. Simply they've been saying for thousands of years that you have to be single to show your love and dedication for God. Only single people can become a priest or a nun and teach religion to the masses. If Jesus was married then that would go completely against their doctrine.

    Actually, no it doesn't. In fact it was one of the most early christian teachings.

    Read up on gnosticism, and the Holy grail. That should be enough.

    Because then his bloodline might live on today, in which case we would put his progeny on pedestal to exalt above all others, and the church would have no more authority.

    I think you need to read up gnosticism.

    I think people are upset because it goes against Christian doctrine. I watched a documentary on the whole thing on CNN I believe the person speaking said it wouldnt be that unsual for a jewish Man to remain unmarried (and you have to remember Jesus died when he was 33)

    That is only certain groups who already believe this. Besides, those who believe this aren't the ones complaining. So I guess my statement should have been more specific.

    because Christianity focuses on the perfection of Jesus as the true son of God when they REALLY should be focusing on God HIMSELF.

    Because it means that Jesus wasnt the bachelor we all think he was. He was a Swinga baby!

    it's simple really...

    If Jesus had a wife and child, then the Bible is wrong about his life.
    If the Bible is wrong about something as important as Jesus' life (the center point of the entire book), then it could be wrong about anything.
    If it could be wrong about anything, then it is worthless as a foundation for a belief system.

    And? What do you think christians are? a homogenous whole? There are hundreds of different denominations with completely opposite doctrines. There were quite a few sects who believed in the holy family
